How to make chimichurri sauce
We have parsley, cilantro, cumin, red wine vinegar, olive oil and garlic.
First thing I do is take out my food processor.
I wash and de-stem 1 cup each of packed cilantro and parsley. Then I place the greens in the food processor along with 1/2 cup oil, 3 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup pistachios, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon cumin.
I turn the processor on high and let the chimichurri sauce mix. It takes about two minutes. I interrupt the food processor halfway through to scrape the sides down. I want all those yummy cilantro and parsley leaves to be incorporated!!
Once the ingredients all blend together, I scrape the chimichurri sauce into a Ball jar.
I put that little stuffed giraffe in the photo because I think giraffes would love this chimichurri sauce, its being green and all!
